Matt Vasgersian leaving ESPNs Sunday Night Baseball booth – New York Post

Play-by-player Matt Vasgersian informed ESPN executives that he is leaving his position on “Sunday Night Baseball,” The Post has learned.

After four years teamed with Alex Rodriguez, Vasgersian wants to focus on new, pending deals with MLB Network, and potentially expand his work on Angels’ regional telecasts.

“I decided to call it a wrap on ‘Sunday Night Baseball,’” Vasgersian said when reached by The Post. “I can’t do everything I enjoy with MLB Network and the Angels, while still being away for nearly 30 weekends a year.” 

Vasgersian, 54, worked his final game for ESPN on Tuesday when the Red Sox beat the Yankees.

Earlier Tuesday, The Post reported that ESPN would like to have Rodriguez return on “Sunday Night Baseball.”

The potential replacements for Vasgersian include Boog Sciambi, Karl Ravech, Jason Benetti, Michael Kay, Ryan Ruocco and Dave Flemming.
